I wish I had thought this idea up on my own. I saw it somewhere on the internet last year (sorry I am not crediting the “author”; let me know if you know who that is); the idea has been in the back recesses of my mind ever since waiting to be cookie.fied. It works beautifully as a Valentines set. We’re (not) playing games this February 14th!
Denver has a very grateful and satisfied neighborhood. They have a police officer (several actually) that are watching over them carefully and interacting with purpose. And the residents have noticed. These cookies were part of a set that was sent to District 2 as a thank you.
A little attention to detail and some puffy icing makes all the difference.
This custom cookie biz is never boring. It involves some interesting themes. For this batch I was given some photos of dogs with their owners and asked to make portrait cookies. Of the dogs. I am not an actual artist in the classic painting sense. People and their faces scare me. Need to take a class on that one. Okay, more than one class. In the meanwhile, I’ll stick to our furry friends.
This holiday party was non denominational, with no jolly old elf or reindeer to be included. The invite was all about the plaid with decorations including sprigs of pine and pine cones. Oh and, um, moose and squirrels were involved. Not in a relationship like Bullwinkle and Rocky or anything. Just in a woodlands creature sort of way.
